the start of his second term in prayer. our white house correspondent brianna keilar is outside st. john's church. that's right near the white house. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is on the national mall. brianna, let's go to you first. tell us what's going on. what is about to happen? >> reporter: hi there, wolf. i am across from the church where president obama and mrs. obama are inside sitting, not in the traditional president's pew, but in the first row, as is the vice president and his family, and i want to show you, if this bus will move behind me, you can see over here the presidential limousine, the beast. once this service is over and we are told that it will be short and sweet, the beast is standing ready to whisk president obama and mrs. obama off to the capitol. >> brianna, thank you. let's go to jessica yellin. jessica, i understand you're learning some details about what the president will say. >> reporter: one insider insisted to me, wolf, that there is no challenge to be met today, no political test, but president obama considers this speech deeply me
means the inside game just sitting down with john mccain and john boehner doesn't work so well on these issues. i think he will make aning a aggressive effort to engage the public. he has taken his campaign organization, obama for america, and turned it into an advocacy group called, organizing for action. i think part of the effort is going to be mobilize public support for his agenda. shepard: it's my understanding the vice president will be walking, there is the first lady, michelle obama. ab stod stoddard is with us. reading all the blogs, what will she be wearing. narrate if if you will. >> she is in combination a tom brown dress. she has a different bells on. j. crew and j. crew shoes. this will go to the national arc kifs immediately after she wears it. she looks absolutely smashing. understated but truly elegant. shepard: she has entered the crypt and come down the stairs. she will be announced as we she walks out. first lady will be followed by the president. let's listen as they make the now traditional walk. this is five inaugurations for me and walking down these st
information. >> ifill: republican john mccain pressed clinton on why u.s. consular staff evacuated from libya to germany weren't questioned sooner. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors, who were flown to ramstein the next day, that they-- that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say that it's because an investigation was going on-- the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. so here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. now, if you want to go out and tell the american people what happened, you should at least have interviewed the people who were there instead of saying, no, we couldn't talk to them because an f.b.i. investigation was going on. >> well, senator, i understand your very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge qaddafi and try to give the libyan people a chance. and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen
friend john mentioned a few minutes ago. part of what i heard was some of the difficulties we encountered during the invasion of iraq and the occupation or things that damage the republican brand in a deeper way. you have a lot to say. you have a thing or two to say about a number of other issues. is it your view is that republicans need to get right on foreign policy and that is a core issue that is affecting everything else? are you seeing it as a garnish on the salad? not essential. >> as a party, we need to have john and bill on that wing of the party. we also need those who acted and soggy world like we did -- and saw the world like we did in congress or we believed in a restrained foreign policy. that is part of the balance. did you go back and look at what william buckley said about iraq. he said it was not a conservative of venture. there's nothing conservative about believing that you're going to be able to change the way people live and think in other countries that do not have a democratic background. i think the bigger problem really has to duet the domestic side of things. as
're going to know who i am. john did his tea bagger thing and i raised my hand. >> didn't you stand up and said you take pride in your -- oh! >> he's like that's you. >> hal: that's why he invited you backstage. >> caller: it was hilarious. my best friend said i'll bet their back stage going that must be dana from maryland. she's a tea bagger. that's it. >> hal: thank you so much, dana. >> caller: wait, wait, one more thing though. my topic i wanted to talk about was abortion. >> oh! >> caller: rachel, i didn't know the small little legislative laws like the woman has to listen to the tape of the heart beat. >> oh, yeah. >> caller: tape her reaction, her physical reaction. and i wanted to ask you hal smalltown kid, how do you deal with that? >> hal: you know, before roe v. wade and before it was a protected right in this country a lot of women handled this quite frankly like patrick swayze's dance partner in dirty dancing. through a shady doctor or no doctor at all. >> caller: but they did it on the kitchen table. >> hal: exactly. or well people who could pretend they didn't have to do
.c. and georgetown. john henrehan has that story. >> reporter: metro's problem in a nutshell is its popularity. a regional rail system carries about 750,000 a over the next 25 years, that's expected to grow to more than a million riders a day. even with all eight car trains during rush hours, the central core capacity of the system will become constantly jammed. >> where there is no longer capacity in the system, whether it's east-west, north-south, you have to split the system apart and provide additional tracks. >> reporter: the general manager outlined for the board that oversees the system a plan that calls for consideration of new underground metro tunnels in d.c. between tenth street northwest and beneath m street northwest. those underground lines with new tracks would include a new tunnel under the potomac river into rossland. 100 years ago trolleys ran here and you can see the remnants of the tracks. they went away in the 1950s. commuter leaders in georgetown of cool to the idea of a metro stop when the system was being designed in the 1960s. attitudes may have changed. >> a metro rai
-- that, a columnist from "the new york times." we will get right into it. john, hot you wrote a book a few years back called open-" -- "bush country to go in which he celebrated the achievement of our 43rd president. he is a guy that thought deeply about immigration reform, poverty, and trying to craft a middle class agenda. now a lot are thinking the same thing. do you think republicans were too quick to abandon george w. bush? >> sorry. i was tweeting. [laughter] yes and no. politically, republicans distanced themselves from george w. bush because it was the thing to do. numbers do not lie. he became very unpopular. parties do not have to embrace figures and politicians to become unpopular. my view is that a lot of distress over bush's domestic agenda from which they fled in 2005. it had been an ancillary result of failure to defend iraq and have a favorable recognition. >> what might have been a successful policy agenda? >> i think the entire country stopped listening to president bush which would be good for the country when it lost faith that he was managing the war effectively.
of their brother. maybe it comes from his college football days as defensive back under the legendary john galardi. i always tease him and that he made up for modest talents with extraordinary dedication and a high threshold for pain. [laughter] this does remind me of the one topic that we will never agree, biking versus bears. -- vikings versus bears, and there's another reason we all love him so much, and that is his decency, his respect for those around him. ask any of the staff that are here today, and they will tell you despite the unbelievable pressures of service at this level, denis mcdonough is still the first to think about a colleague, or write a hand- written note to say thank you, or to ask about your family. that is the spirit that i want in this white house. this, of course, is reflected in his incredible love for his own family, liam, teddy -- i know that dad has been at work a lot during the week and on weekends, and i guarantee he would much rather be with you than with me, but the next job he will have will be demanding, two, but the one reason he does this is because he wants
